That's right, Keurig® K-Cup® pods are made of #5 plastic and are recyclable in select locations in Canada! However, they may not be recyclable in your area.* That's why we designed a recycling program to support your commercial needs.
While Keurig® K-Cup® pods were designed to be recycled in 3 easy steps through local recycling programs, K-CycleTM is tailored to your specific business needs. You collect the brewed Keurig® K-Cup® pods - no need to empty and peel the lid off - and place them in the designated bin. We then handle the pickup, making sure that your used Keurig® K-Cup® pods are effectively diverted and that the plastic is recycled.
Offering this program to our customers for free was important to us because we wanted to acknowledge that certain commercial clients have specific needs that require alternative solutions, and we're determined to offer them a tailored recycling solution.
Partake in K-CycleTM, a sustainable solution, at no extra charge.
The value of recycling
#5 plastic is a high-value, versatile material that can be recycled and find a second life. Recycling Keurig® K-Cup® pods through the K-CycleTM program extends their lifespan and helps reduce waste and the use of new materials.
It’s a sustainable option that’s in line with the circular economy. It ensures that as many pods as possible are effectively recycled to their fullest value and reintroduced on the market.
